Client came to the office with a thirteen year license suspension, five years for refusing the breathalyzer and eight years for an OUI. Client was not eligible to even apply for a hardship license until 2020 and his full suspension would not conclude until 2028.

We decided to file a Motion for a New Trial in Plymouth District Court to try and reopen his first OUI from 1987. Today, we had our hearing in Plymouth District Court. I am thrilled to say that not only were we successful in getting our motion allowed, but the Commonwealth was forced to move to dismiss, as they could no longer prove their case. Working with the Registry of Motor Vehicles, our client’s license suspension will be modified to three years and forty-five days. Our victory will allow our client to reinstate his right to operate today.
